Recap of Day #8

Breakfast was the same ole shake I always make in the am. Boring, I know. But it starts my day off right, even if certain things seem to creep there way in....

I managed to stick to my salad for lunch, but opted for Shaws today instead. I splurged and picked up their vegetarian dumplings from the sushi section as well. This gray, damp, rainy days has me yearning for heat, so something warm was necessary for lunch. I failed and purchased chips. They were however gluten free, but for some reason gave me heart burn. Boooo.

Gluten Free Chips
 When I got home from work, I was oddly tired and felt the yearning for my sofa. And a snack. Multigrain chips and some Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus seemed fitting.
I have a chip problem. That and hummus.
 Somewhere between vegging out on the sofa and heading to the gym, I felt the need to bake some cookies. Random, I know. But on occasion I get cravings. I thankfully had everything I needed for some Chocolate Chocolate Chip Coconut Pecan Cookies. (Yes I made those up.)

 Don't they look yummy? I know, my camera phone isn't ideal, but it's so much easier to send photos to myself for the blog. One day I'll day.
Baking cookies.
Don't worry, cookies weren't my dinner. After a 60 mins workout at the gym, and some serious stretching (need to prepare for Bootcamp tonight), I wasn't in the mood to cook. So I made myself a dark chocolate berry protein shake. I even added the grainy protein powder and some how stomached it down. Then completed the day with two cookies and a cup of tea. 

*Even though I am failing miserably at being gluten free, I am reminding myself at every meal to think about how much I've consumed. If anything, this past week has kept me thinking about nutrition and what I am inhaling all day long. And having to post all of this for you (the world) to see, it's helped. So thank you.
